Plickers - Automatic Student Feedback With Only 1 Device - My Bright Idea

Well, it's obviously not my bright idea, but apparently some very intelligent person created a way to get automated student feedback with just an app on one device. It kind of works similar to QR codes if you're familiar with that. Instead of trying to write about it and get...word-tied(??), I've made a video to explain a little bit how it works. Obviously I couldn't show you in a classroom setting, but I think there are already some awesome videos out there that do that (Just be careful when you search or you will end up watching Kelly Pickler songs like I did!).

And if you're a early childhood teacher, Plickers can be done, too! Mary Amoson has a Plicker video just for you to show you how to tweak the cards to work for the little ones.

Here's my Plickers video:

  3. Thanks for the great idea! I'm always looking for new ways to add technology that is interactive - not technology for the sake of technology.
